National Indigenous Peoples Day

Celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day

Friday, June 21 is the longest day of the year and marks the changing of seasons. It is also a very important day for Indigenous Peoples (First Nations, Métis, Inuit). In 1982, this day was chosen to celebrate the land and the Indigenous Peoples and their cultures. It is also a public (statutory) holiday in the Northwest Territories and the Yukon.
